If Jane Goodall is the ambassador for the animal kingdom, and Vandana Shiva is the ambassador for seeds, then Diana Beresford-Kroeger is unquestionably the global ambassador speaking on behalf of the world’s trees and forests. Perhaps no one possesses the wisdom of the forest as Diana -- an Irish-Canadian researcher, botanical scientist, medical biochemist and Celtic nature mystic. She has written extensively on the molecular biology of trees, their medicinal properties, trees’ social interactions in the forest and with other life forms, forest conservation, and the traditional wisdom trees hold for healing. In the past Diana has held science posts at the Canadian Department of Agriculture and the University of Ottawa School of Medicine.  She is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and was named a World Visionary by Utne Reader. Her research gardens outside Ottawa, open to the public, include rare plants from Turkey, Iran, China, and a hundred rare types of species from the northern forests and other countries, many that are endangered.  Her most recent  spell binding book is “To Speak to the Trees: My Life's Journey from Ancient Celtic Wisdom to a Healing Vision of the Forest” and the documentary “The Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees” highlights Diana’s work across many nations exploring the secrets of northern forests.  More about her work can be found at CallOfTheForest.ca

Charles Ortleb is a journalist, novelist and filmmaker who gained notoriety as the publisher of the gay biweekly New York Native between 1980 and 1996. The Native was the first major publication to take the AIDS epidemic seriously and question the AIDS hypothesis. The publication brought many important individuals such as Peter Duesberg to public attention. New York Native also published John Lauritsen's investigative reporting on the deadly effects of the AIDS drug AZT and was also the first to cover the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic which has been called an epidemic of "Non-HIV AIDS." For a decade the biweekly reported on Neenyah Ostrom's on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome investigations. Much of her reporting focused on HHV-6, the virus that links AIDS and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Rolling Stone journalist David Black claimed Chuck's New York Native deserved a Pulitzer.  Chuck has also written several novels and plays including the novel "Iron Peter." His book on the history of New York Native and its role in the coverage of AIDS is  "The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up."The book has been on Amazon AIDS bestseller list for almost two years. His newest book which comes out next week is called "Susan Sontag as Metaphor" which is about his complicated relationship with the famous intellectual and how she ignored warnings and betrayed the gay community in her famous book, AIDS and Its Metaphors."
